Important Info: Special Needs Dentistry

You know that walking into just any dental practice won’t necessarily provide you with the calm, personalized experience you’re hoping to achieve. This becomes particularly problematic when you are seeking special needs dentistry for a loved one. Fortunately, we offer the full spectrum of services you need and a philosophy of offering care tailored to each individual patient. Learn more!

About Special Needs Dental Care

If you are the caretaker of an individual with special needs, you may have found that securing dental care that is relaxing can be somewhat overwhelming. At our practice, we offer special needs dentistry to ensure all patients have access to efficient, effective care that is both enjoyable and that accommodates every smile.

What You Can Expect

Our approach is a compassionate and individualized one. Rather than simply extend a universal method of administering dental services, we work with the requirements and preferences of all of our patients of all ages. A major component of ensuring patients feel at ease is the customized dental sedation that we offer. This may include nitrous oxide, nitrous oxide and oral sedation, oral sedation, or IV sedation. This helps create a sense of tranquility and security, so we may offer long-term oral health maintenance for smiles that remain healthy for many years to come.

Who Qualifies

Most patients qualify for special needs dentistry and the option of sedation, whether the condition includes a medical problem, physical concern or limitation, or cognitive dysfunction. If you have questions, please give us a call, so we may provide you with the information you need (and so we may schedule your appointment).
